BIOGRAPHY

 

1987, Born in Kirklareli, Turkey. Lives and works in Lisbon.

 

She graduated from Yildiz Technical University, Art and Design Faculty, Combined Arts Program with the highest honors in 2014. Afterwards, she attended master program at Marmara University, Fine Arts Institute, Painting Department and continued her education at Burg Giebchischenstein Kunsthochschule Halle Germany. In her works, her approach is based on the artificial fiction of the contemporary world system and how the absolute credibility of this fiction was influential on people. Thereupon, in order to question the credibility of the instruments of modernism, which is one of these systems, she felt the need to operate the concepts of family-individual-construction of national identity as well as Architectural propaganda in this new fiction by manipulating their contexts, spaces and places.

In 2018, she was nominated for the The MAC Belfast, Ulster Bank International Artist Award. Recently she had a solo show in İstanbul which calls Flat Earth\ W axis at Pilot Gallery. Currently she is artist in residence in AIR 351 by the Gulbenkian Grant in Lisbon. Major exhibitions she participated includes; ”MAC International Art Prize” 2018, “Art Night London” 2018, “RedBull Art Around” 2016, “Locality and Global Discourses”  2015, California University School of Art, San Francisco, USA, “Open City”, Pilot Gallery , 2016,  “Alteration Depression” Solo Exhibition, Hush Gallery, 2015, “Fine Tuned and Multiple”, Kuad Gallery, 2015, ”Second Nature”, METU, 2015, “Borders Orbits 15 - 16", Siemens Art, 2014, “Rotary Art Award Exhibition”, Finalist, Proje 4L / Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art, 2014.
